Ford Goes Further with Renewable Nanomaterials, Paper360º May/June 2018
Can nanocellulose really offer automotive manufacturers better performance, at a lower cost, with a greener footprint? Maybe Billy Ocean said it best: “Get out of my dreams… and into my car.”
At the nanoscale, a material’s physical properties can change dramatically due to the high ratio of surface area to volume of nanoparticles. This means that nanomaterials can be engineered to have a variety of valuable properties, including higher strength and lighter weight. When these high-potential materials are made of cellulose, the opportunities are too good to pass up—particularly in a highly competitive, innovation-minded industry like automotive manufacturing. (See sidebar on page 19 for more information about nanocellulose materials.)
